someone told me the HD-1 from roland would not work trough midi with the drumkit delivered with the game. so after finishing building my new HD-1, i hooked up the midi cable and tried it out in the studio mode. here you can see the result, truely working like a charm.

my third SEGA AGES review is about powerdrift. big sprites, bold graphics, speedy and smooth gameplay, and a ton of track. this game is, just like outrun, sega at what they do best: releasing blockbuster games for the arcade hall.

Hello and welcome to my second drumcover. I have chosen words for serveral reasons, but the main reason is that i can't keep up with the faster songs yet as i still am a beginner at drumming :-) but i have fun, and i know i will get better in time. thanks for taking your time to watch this song, and i hope you liked it.

hier doe ik een video review voor iedereen die benieuwd is naar de veranderingen in deze nieuwe telg uit de outrun serie. de review is gebaseerd op de xbox 360 versie, maar de playstation 3 versie is geheel hetzelfde, dus veel kijk en luister plezier. deze video is mede mogenlijk gemaakt door de medewerking van mijn neef jacky. hartelijk dank voor het spelen van het spel tijdens mijn video review.

here the forth sega ages review. this time the honour goes to galaxy force II. the arcade hall version was huge, round, and could move in all directions exept for upside down. even bigger sprites than in powerdrift, but the saturn handles them on the fly. this game shows the great power of the sprite scaling chip inside the saturn. to bad gale racer (rad mobile) did not had it's arcade perfect conversion, as that game was a totall letdown exept for gameplay.

the secnd arcade version track from the game virtua racing bay bridge. on the 3D ages version there are others, but these 3 posted tracks have made more of a impact on me because of the exelent arcade version of this game. this version that can be found in the sega classics collection is just as good, but now you don't need money to get the game going. have fun with this trip down memory lane. only the AI could have been a bit better, but what do you expect from such a classic game :-D

Crazy taxi. THE reason for me, to get me a dreamcast. this game has got all the arcade ingredients i need, and one more: orginal ! so, the game is fun, fast, happy mood, and above all, its orginal ! so far, i have never ever played a game where you have to transport passengers ! and they are verry funny, as they will comment on your driving, be it good, or bad. they just keep on talking. my favorite cabby gus act like he is the god of cabbies. i always pick him as he and his cab are heavy, so easy to plough trough traffic. the speed i get from the special move called crazy boost. other moves are "crazy dash", crazy back dash", and the "crazy drift". the drift gives you also more score as the passenger loves you showing off your driving skills, like passing close to car's, jumping, and drifting trough courners, or driftstop on their destination. in short, this game never gets boring. at least not for me.

the first track from virtua racing called big forest, this trackname is also used in outrun online arcade. this golden oldie VR can be found on sega's classics collection (european release). this is still a highly playable game, and a wonderfull trip down memory lane to see how quick 3D race games have progressed. to bad the AI can be a pain in the *ss sometimes :-P

Welcome to the final part of the REVIEW, where i show off the Roland HD-1 V-drums lite drumkits that are built in (and NOT my drumskills, as at that time, i had the kit not even for a week...). Also i will be giving a final conclusion. But i forgot to mention that also for advanced drummers, this is a exelent kit, as this really is a neighbour friendly quiet kit and all the basic drum elements are all in there. --- edit --- at the end i said "it's very nice for beginners", but i ment to say "it's very easy to use for beginners". with other drumkits, you can adjust the volume of each pad, and even create own drumkits with the avaiable samples, but this would only confuse beginners. this kit is adjusted right out of the box, so it really IS plug and play. --- end edit ---

Hallo muziekliefhebbers. Hier mijn eerste oefensessie met mijn neef zijn band. Het is niet de bedoeling dat ik echt bij de band kom, daar heb ik gewoon te weinig tijd voor, maar in mijn vakantie heb ik wel even de tijd genomen om gezellig met zijn allen muziek te maken. Het nummer wat we spelen is geschreven door Martijn, en de text is geschreven door Tyscha.

R.I.P. Michael Jackson. You may have gone, but your music will be in my heart forever ! So, after giving it a try for a few times, i thought the time was right to record it and send this tribute to the king of pop up to youtube. I can use some tips on how to keep the hi hat going smooth and on the beat :-) i notice i'm not consistent enough to keep up with the beat. but i played along with guitar hero world tour in the practice mode, so the drumtrack dissapears because i'm not playing the game, but drum along with the song, so the game removes the drumtrack :-) so i hope you like it, and if you have tips for this noob drummer, please say so :-)

as prommissed the second SEGA AGES review. this time the honour goes to afterburner on the sega saturn. this game uses the same sprite scaling technology as outrun did, and gave the speed a high boost. it may lack in long time appeal, but for short round's, it's still a rather fun game to play once in a while.

here you will see part one of the review for collin mcrae DiRT 2. in the review, i did not mentioned the online modus, but there is ofcourse a online mode, where you can choose between ranked or player match. then you get to pick one of the 3 diciplines to race (no collisions time trial based races, collision races where you start at the same time, and more different things like gate crasher). ofcourse you can also choose to do them all. this is the first collin mcrae game where you can actually see your opponents, but codemasters have done a great job. everything works well, finding a match is fast and easy, and so far, i have yet to come across problems.

here i am playing the song "i just called" from stevie wonder on my general music wk 4. i usually don't use the internal rythems, as i'd prefere to pgrogram the song myself, but i wanted to show how exelent those internal rythem's are with the 4 variations they have on each rythem. have fun listening just as much as i had playing !

segaspence and F40 are the pinacle of outrunners, and i saw some clips how they drive with the wheel. they told me how they set up the options, and here they are: - play the wheel with a battery, so you don't get resistance from the wheel when flicking the car quickly into the other direction. - set the sensetivity at 4 (middle) the rest is just practice. at first my driving was really bad with the wheel, but after some plays went better. i still can't improve my totall times i did with the controller, but i AM getting better, and playing with the wheel is much more fun. this is my first real "super replay", as this race finaly went smooth, only one time really bad on the grass at the last stage :-) but i will keep on practising.

here's a replay of one of my run's. the car has been upgraded to pro mode. i made a error saying this is the japan track, as this is the china track. i truely like the way codemasters have finetuned the gameplay controlls, and outdone themselves on the nature environments here in the game. ps: the fogging effect that you see near the end of the road is not in the game. somehow i can't record it at such high details, so the game looks even more amazing than i can show you here.

eindelijk weer eens een video van mijn muziek. helaas besloot mijn keyboard een toets zo af en toe geen geluid te geven (toch maar eens contact spray er in spuiten) maar hij is ook al 9 a 10 jaar oud :-) toch kon ik het niet laten deze versie van de bestemming te uploaden. Marco Borsato en John Ewbank zijn een gouden duo als het om muziek gaat, en de bestemming vind ik een van de moeilijkste, maar mooiste songs die ik van hun hebt gehoord.

After playing guitar hero world tour for a while, i desided to practise drumming in the studio recording mode, where you can drum free. on my general music WK4 keyboard i have plenty songs, where i picked "the beetles - imagine" to drum to. after turning the drum sounds off on my keyboard, i played the guitar hero drumkit. not a bad run for a amature who has never played the drums in his life, if i do say so myself. still, i hope you like this one too !

my first race in utah. not to bad, but some driving errors. just wanted to show the utah track :-) hope you like it. the in car view looks really good tough ! ps: the fogging effect that you see near the end of the road is not in the game. somehow i can't record it at such high details, so the game looks even more amazing than i can show you here.

get ready to laugh, as this is just my second run on the breaking free song from high school musical. and i just barely got my drumkit (just 2 days), so i where bound to make manny mistakes. i just was so eager to show my parents, and annyone liking to laugh to show off my "skills" (read this with a funny sarcasm note). i hope you laugh, have fun, and give me tips on improving my drumskills :-) this song is dedicated to my nice Melissa. she just can't get enough of high school musical and other musical movies like with the jonas brothers (don't know if this is spelled right :-P)

i've come up with a nice basic beat, and wanted to see what i could come up with if there's no music to play along to. so this still is a "work in progress" project, but i wanted to show the basic's to see how you like it. feel free to give tips, comments (well constructed, as "you suck" does not give me a idea how i can improve) and even rate :-P thanks for taking time to listen.

welcome to my new video. this time my trusty keyboard gets to show off it's magical sound on the song "susanne" from the dutch band called v.o.f. de kunst (that would translate to v.o.f. the art ;-) ) i hope you like this version, but i noticed the sound quallity is really bad. to bad i have no equipment to do a decent recording, but you get the idea how the song goes.

Here at the american car meeting at den haag (the hague) a stock car was pre heating the engine to work temperature, and then give some rev's :-) close to the end his foot slips of the clutch and the car jumped (a little) forwards, scaring off my nephews and their nephew :-D (to bad i did not taped their reaction ;-) ) if you only want to hear the reving and skip the pre heating, click at around 1:40

here i'm playing the drum part of hotel callifornia in the game guitar hero world tour. it's not a perfect run, but i never have drummed in my life, so for a beginner player donig the hardest setting without being thrown off stage is not bad et all if i do say so myself :-) i hope you have fun watching, and if you like it, you get my permission to rate my video and leave a comment. bear in mind i game for fun, and not to be a proffessional, so i know i'm not the best out there :-)

here i am racing the last race that was held in honour to collin cmrae in the game (unlocked after played the last Xgames match). just to show off the exelent reflections in the bonnet, and this wonderfull track. ps: the fogging effect that you see near the end of the road is not in the game. somehow i can't record it at such high details, so the game looks even more amazing than i can show you here.
